NZLocums requires that all general practitioners who work with us hold appropriate medical indemnity insurance whilst working in New Zealand.
The Medical Protection Society (MPS) is a leading provider of discretionary professional indemnity and expert advice for healthcare professionals. A representative from MPS facilitates one of the orientation seminars and can assist with any indemnity queries you may have.
This is not a cost that NZLocums is able to cover, however the rates are very reasonable – click here for the current GP rate. If you are coming for a shorter period of time, your current indemnity insurance may cover you.
For doctors looking at long term and permanent moves, this cost may be negotiated as part of your employment package with the practice.
